In a world busier than ever, it’s not exaggerating to say that our lives and businesses cannot afford even an hour’s delay of transportation, yet its safety and efficient operation are constantly exposed to all sorts of incidents like terrorist attacks and even unexpected accidents. Last year, Australia passed The Crimes Legislation Amendment (Police Powers at Airports) Bill enabling the police to perform random ID checks, which is somewhat inefficient, therefore causing unpleasant experience to passengers. There must be a better way to do this.
Similar security challenges are faced by other transportation hubs such as railways, subways, public buses, ports and parking lots. These areas are typically flooded with people from all places and cargo of all types, making it costly and time consuming to track and check them manually.
, a global video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, has been working for years to provide comprehensive smart transportation solutions that guarantee users with more security, more efficiency and more profit. Thanks to the rapid development of AI technology in recent years, the Dahua Smart Transportation Solutions has been widely applied in major transportation hubs.
Dahua Railway Solution
As the expansion of cities and population causes a series of traffic problems on roads, railways and subways have become one of the most popular ways people choose to travel. Due to the increasing importance of railway safety, traditional video surveillance solutions can no longer meet modern security needs. In order to ensure the safety of railway facilities, passengers and staff securities, Dahua Railway Solution combines AI, big data and other technologies based on video surveillance with actual business scenarios to help railway operators respond to various emergencies and create pleasant journey for passengers.
Suspect Warning: Dahua face recognition
cameras are deployed at entrances and exits to capture and identify human faces, which will then be compared to the images in the database. It will trigger the alarm if a wanted or blacklisted person enters the perimeter, aiding the police in capturing suspects.
With functions such as people counting and queue management, the smart Dahua security system assists retailers in increasing operating efficiency and enhancing profits by analyzing and classifying the traffic flow in their shops at the train station.
Incident Early Warning:
Intelligent perimeter technology helps detect passengers falling off the platform within the platform area, ensuring the safety of passengers getting on and off the train.
Fatigue Driving Warning:
Dangerous driving behaviors such as fatigue driving, smoking, etc. can be identified, which will trigger the alarm accordingly to inform both the platform staff and driver, securing all the passengers onboard.
Carrying 400,000 passengers a day, Recife’s urban trains system in Brazil, chose Dahua railway solution to upgrade its security. 1,380 Dahua network cameras endowed with HD resolution, video analytics and Starlight cameras were installed to monitor 52 places scattered all over the 71 km area of the railway line. These cameras work 24/7 in capturing and identifying images, reinforcing the security of the Central and Southern lines of the Pernambuco Subway. It also provides operators with detailed views of the subway operations, especially during peak hours or tourist events such as carnivals. The AI analytics can automatically trigger the alarm if facial features of a criminal are matched in the database. The new video surveillance system was also designed to operate in a centralized management, which made it possible for operators to efficiently handle their manpower. In addition, it does not only protect the safety of passengers, it also prevent vandalism in the area.
Dahua Airport Solution
Committed to solve security threats, Dahua Airport Solution provides customers with more efficient visual security solutions tailored for flight areas, terminals and public areas in order to meet both monitoring and early warning needs of modern airport security. In addition to basic CCTV, access control, and alarm, Dahua Airport Solution also integrates cloud computing, AI, big data and other up-to-date technologies to deliver an upgraded airport security system to its customers.
Intelligent Detection in Terminal:
Artificial intelligence technology is applied in terminal building areas to fulfill passenger behavior analysis, personnel loitering detection, unattended baggage detection, population density analysis, traffic statistics and other functions that can aid intelligent early warnings, thus creating more customer value.
The perimeter of the airport is monitored by thermal imaging technology, which is suitable for various weather conditions and provides users with high-precision intrusion detection warning. Combined with a visible light camera, users can capture a clear picture of an incident.
Face recognition technology has also been widely used in the airport vicinity. It is deployed at key entrance and exit areas to identify people entering the airport and to provide users with timely warning when a high-risk individual has been detected.
Take-off and Landing Tracking:
It is well known that the aircraft take-off and landing process is the most dangerous and complex stage during the entire flight. The Dahua Visual Aircraft Landing and Tracking System can completely track and monitor the status of aircraft take-off and landing. The system can detect abnormal conditions on time -- such as when the landing gear are not lowered normally -- which ensures the safety of the aircraft during takeoff and landing.
In 2018, one of the largest airports in Sri Lanka adapted the Dahua Thermal Imaging Perimeter Monitoring System to protect the safety of its flight zones. The system has guaranteed the takeoff and landing of more than 60,000 aircrafts, guarding the safety of 10 million passengers throughout the year. The system can effectively collect images around the clock and allows automatic monitoring of intrusion events under special weather conditions such as total darkness, glare, backlight, fog, smog, etc., which assures accurate detection with reduced false alarms. Indeed, the security level of the airport has been further improved and the efficiency of the security has been optimized.
Other Dahua Smart Transportation Solutions
Dahua Public Bus Solution aims to help bus companies reduce security risks. The camera in the front of the bus can detect and analyze driver’s behavior such as yawning or using cellphone while driving, which will then trigger the alarm. In addition, the onboard screens can display advertisements as well as station information for passengers, bringing more benefits to bus companies.
Dahua Highway Solution provides HD video surveillance regardless of bad weather conditions or dark environment. Featuring its great compatibility with other systems, it allows users to monitor the road from a unified control center from afar, thus saving a great deal of expenses.
Dahua Port Solution features HD video surveillance for a more efficient management of people, vehicles and containers. Dahua container number recognition technology enables cameras to identify license plate, ISO, vehicle weight and other information automatically, thus helping port administrators save labor cost.
Dahua Parking Solution integrates ANPR and video analytics
enabling automatic driving in/out without manual interference to improve parking efficiency. Additionally, guiding and locating vehicles via embedded E-map is also set up to enhance user experience.
Dahua Technology’s Smart Transportation Solutions cover basically all major areas of transportation. The state-of-the-art Dahua surveillance system provides not only higher security but also better services with higher efficiency and lower cost, which is the result of the AI capability to analyze recorded HD videos for various practical purposes. Committed to the mission of “Enabling a safer society and smarter living,” Dahua Technology will adhere to the core value of “customer-centered” and will continue to provide the market with end-to-end security solutions, systems, and services to create value for city operations, corporate management, and consumers.
